Mike Gore's add-host.f16 script usage on linux.cscf - designed for FALL 2016 grad PC with stand-alone admin user

This script will update existing F16 images with the patches supplied by David and Lawrence on *Friday Sept 2, 2016 - and create a local admin user
  1. ) logon to linux.cscf
  2. ) sudo bash
  3. ) cd */home/magore/bin
  4. ) ./add-host.f16 scspcxxx.cs userid
      • The uwaterloo.ca part is not required
      • If the host is in the .cs domain you must include the .cs
      • userid will be an admin on the remote host with sudo perms
    • copies scripts in /home/magore/bin to remote host under /tmp/bin"
    • then runs /tmp/bin/updates.f16 -h scspcxxx.cs -u userid -y is called which causes:
      • and runs ./add_user.f16
      • scspcxxx.cs is replaced by your hostname
